View Full Version : Shredders snacking and Deathstalker wounding it!
07-31-2011, 09:19 AM
I'm assuming that you are required to have been damaged to and be able to heal in order to snack and therefore remove a model from play if killed!
With a Deathstalker you can do 1 auto pt of damage to a beast.
Is this viable or a waste of a shot?

I read Snacking and it does state - "If this model Healed, remove boxed model from play" so you would need to have damage to heal. If it was really necessary and no other targets I assume you could do it.
In the end it would really only matter on what you were trying to remove from play. Could be a great move or waste of a shot :-)

If its super important that the model is removed instead of just destroyed then its a very useful tactic.

Most of my RFP targets revolve around eGaspy (and are thus undead). If you play against the monolith bearer a lot this could certainly be useful. TBH I should go through my books to see who I should be targetting. I have a Sythean in 2 or the 3 lists I'm working on ATM so it' somewhat moot, but good to remember or when it crops up.

RFPing a beast playing against pthags is smart. the RFP effect also stops the opponent from reaving fury from the dead beasts and can be a useful tool.

If you have a dire need to RFP a living model, it could end up being a brilliant play. Keep in mind that to deny fury from the reeve this way, you'll have to take some risks by leaving a heavy slightly alive, but not too alive so a shredder can finish it off, which could backfire with a pair of bad rolls pretty badly. However, stopping that reeve and forcing a cutting could be huge, among other things it can do (like neutering of some feats / spells).

Yeah it think it works in theory but need to see it in practice! If te shredder failed the rabid Att you would get a second shot! 10+3D6 should do enough to kill most heavies, and then RFP, no souls no reaving etc......
And if the second Att failed he prob can't risk the free strike either!

I find cutting for fury to be not that big of a deal. The real advantage would be if the shredder could prevent fury from going to a lock that was going to be assassinated that turn. I have always been a fan of leaving fury on beasts that the opponent has to get through to get to my warlock, so preventing those extra transfers can be gamebraking.
